Governor Pays For His Own Fair Ticket. Says It's Still A Bargain


As he has every year since becoming governor, Pat Quinn attended Opening Day of the Illinois State Fair Friday… after paying for his ticket out of his own pocket. But it cost the governor more this year… with the adult ticket price now up to seven dollars.

 

Quinn says it’s still a bargain, considering all of the exhibits and entertainment waiting inside the fairgrounds. Fair officials hope milder weather will bring large crowds out, regardless of the ticket price hike.

 

The fair runs through Sunday, August 19th.
